Brooklyn Burglary Lawyers

What Is Burglary?

Burglary, as defined in the legal context, is a crime that involves unauthorized entry into a structure with the intent to commit an offense therein. While the terms “robbery” and “burglary” are often used interchangeably in everyday language, they are distinct concepts in the realm of criminal law. Robbery refers to the act of taking another’s property through force or threat of force, typically in their presence. It involves a direct confrontation between the perpetrator and the victim. Burglary, on the other hand, involves unlawfully entering a structure with the intention of committing a crime inside. Crucially, burglary does not require the presence of, or confrontation with, any person.

If you have been charged with burglary, it is imperative that you seek legal representation immediately. The penalties for this type of crime are extremely severe, and you need to have someone fighting for your rights and future.
